Invite team members with Organization viewer seats
On an Enterprise plan, you can invite an unlimited number of people to your organization on Organization viewer seats. Read on to find out how Organization viewers can contribute to your team.
Adding someone as an Organization viewer can be a great option for a team member, agency, consultant, or data analyst who needs to oversee the creation of typeforms and be able to view their results or share them, without having access to edit them or set up new integrations.
The main features of the Organization viewer are the following:
- Organization viewer seats don’t count toward the total number of seats included in your plan
- Organization viewer seats are assigned at the organization level
- Organization viewers can join multiple workspaces
- Organization viewers can only be invited to workspaces with Can view permissions
- Organization viewers cannot create new workspaces

How to invite someone as an Organization viewer?
To invite someone as an Organization viewer:

Now you’ll see the members in your organization. The counter on the right-hand side shows you how many Editor and how many Organization viewer seats have been taken already in your organization.
2. Click Invite members or Invite viewers.

People on an Organization viewer seat can view existing Brand kits, but they cannot edit them, and the + Create brand kit button will also be grayed out - a tooltip will be displayed about requesting Admin permissions.
